The Better World Fund

Mobilizing Students to Make a Difference!

Indiana Tech established The Better World Fund to help our students fund projects, trips or activities which contribute to the world around us… to make it a better world. Qualifying projects include, but are not limited to mission trips, service projects, advocacy opportunities (environment, civil rights, etc.) and humanitarian relief efforts. Projects may be conducted in the USA or internationally. Any student who as a vision for a project she or he thinks might fit this opportunity are highly encouraged to apply.

If you have questions about The Better World Fund, please email Greg Byman at
